Viking Hoard of Cuerdale
Updated: Nov 20
The Cuerdale Hoard is one of the largest found Viking hordes containing over 8,000 pieces of Viking jewelry, bullion, and coins. It was discovered 15 May 1840 in the Ribble Valley, a once bustling route for Vikings travelling between the Irish Sea and Viking York. The treasuries estimated, to have been buried between 905-910, follows the Viking expulsion from Dublin in 902.
